On May 31st, 2014, the Linux distribution Linux Mint 17 (named “Qiana”) Cinnamon has been released. Since I wanted to replace Ubuntu Linux on my Lenovo ThinkPad with something else (but nothing too far away from it), I choose Mint Cinnamon (64-bit). Installation was easy and fast, but then I had to redo the installation of my CMS synformation on that machine (simply because I use it as a development and test machine). Java 1.7 (OpenJDK) was installed already, so I had to install Tomcat, MySQL, and Apache. Here, I’ll only talk about Tomcat and Apache, because I choose to use another way to integrate both: I had used
mod_jk before and was looking for an easier way.
The problem with rats leaving a sinking ship is that they usually do it by gnawing holes in the bottom.
